    So you didn’t clean all the shipping/storage sludge off before running it?

    HK’s need hot ammo for break in. Most of them even mention this in the owners manual. Running 115gr bulk ammo during break in is just asking for problems.

    I’ll be curious as to what you hear back from CS.

    It was red

    Update.
    I got my P30 back from HK they didn't say what was wrong or say what they did. I got a flash drive with them shooting it using Blazer brass and no issues
    I shot it today 150 rounds it feeds normal but ejects like a glock brass everywhere including my head. I will chalk it up to crappy Remington 115grain brown box cheap ass ammo. I will get some better ammo and try again later in the week

    I found some reviews of this ammo and it seems to be 940-1000fps ammo with 115gr bullet. This is 108-115 (kgr*ft/s) IPSC/USPSA power factor (minimal power factor is IPSC/USPSA is . I'm actually amazed this ammo manages to cycle your P30 at all. This gun is designed to use 9mm NATO rounds that go 1150-1300fps with 124gr bullet (power factor 142-161 - this is level of +P ammo). That is huge difference. If you want to shoot 115gr, look for something that goes around 1150fps (more/less power factor 130+) for best reliability. In my P30 and P30L, when they were "broke in" (some 2000+ rounds) I managed to shoot ammo that was on threshold of 125 power factor (115gr Blazer alu case and 124gr Barnaul steel case) and both pistols cycled, but both felt sluggish.

    I've shot a lot of Blazer Brass 115gr and Winchester white box out of my P30 and never had a single problem. Never tried the Remington brown box but have had zero problems with the Remington UMC.

    That makes sense. Im guessing that because the slide is larger/ heavier than say a glock it needs more momentum.
    although HK never did tell me what was wrong or if anything was done. Im guessing it was the ammo.
    Blazer 115gr seems to function fine as they tested it with both 115 and 124gr.
    Thanks for commenting always appreciate hearing from you when there's an HK question

    Shoot full power ammo...if there is such thing for a 9mm. 115 grr often lacks the power necessary for cycling of new guns, yes even our beloved never fail glocks. So, either shoot 124gr (maybe 300-500 rnds) or just lock your slide back for a few days to “break in” your recoil spring.
